After a fruitful and inspiring training session yesterday 07.04.2017 at my martial arts school, www.kampfkunst-germering.de with my master Goran Pujic, I drew today a series of 4 renderings of the famous founder of Shaolin monastery and the first patriarch of Chan-Buddhism, Bodhidharma. In Chinese he is called also Tamo.

This painting depicts the great master Tamo making a journey across the Yangtze River while riding on the blades of a reed.

The current website of Shaolin is: www.shaolin.org.cn/EN/index.as… .

When I came home from my trip from India in 1995, my first encounter with the sacred tradition of Bodhidharma`s Kung Fu was at the martial arts school of my beloved Grandmaster Ajahn Lao Vongvilay in Munich. Link: www.tiger-kungfu.de : There I trained Kung-Fu in the style of the “crouching tiger” or in Thai: “ Süa Lag Hang”, which can be traced back to Bodhidharma. Also I began to practice the Wing Tsun wooden Dummy Form in the tradition of Grandmaster Yip Man.

Today I am learning since 2 years Muay Thai Boran, which is rooted as well in Thailand.

The size of my drawings is A4 with golden Edding markers on blue paper. My writer name is SAMSARA.
